With the Tier 2 engine option, Tigercat brings the benefits of Tigercat power and support to harvesting professionals around the world.

A truly compact skidder

Tigercat’s superior Tier 4 solution is packaged into a physically smaller engine compartment than competing machines, leading to clear operator sightlines and a compact design.

Excellent cab ergonomics, the benefits of hydrostatic drive and painless maintenance routines make Tigercat skidders a top choice among operators. With high quality components and construction, the 610E is designed for long service life and high uptime.

The difference is in the drive…

Hydrostatic drive offers many advantages. Performance in tough terrain is excellent because full tractive effort is available at any engine speed, minimizing wheel spin and improving breakout performance. The operator appreciates simplified drive control with no gear shifting.

Electronic control technology combined with Tigercat’s unique hydrostatic drive system allows the skidder to operate at variable engine rpm, automatically increasing engine speed when additional horsepower is demanded. The result is improved fuel economy.
